Garage compressor

Question

Hello sir, great videos.

I have a 220 compressor (3 wire) and on the other side of the wall is my dryer (4 wire) obviously wont use them at the same time but what is the safe way to tie into my dryer outlet. my thought was put an outlet on garage side of wall branched off the dryer outlet similar to adding any other outlet. which wire i exclude is my mystery i guess. thankyou in advance. also im in canada if that matters for code.

  1. I’m assuming your compressor is a two wire. Using two hots and a neutral. Ground the outlet and use the two hots and the ground. But as far as code goes, this is not allowed. Just so you know that.
